I think you know by now that I love the Jacob’s Ladder crochet pattern, as I use it quite a bit. The texture is so fun! In this cowl I have turned the ladder on its side and buttoned it closed for an added detail. As designed, this cowl is best worn with a tuck to make it lay flat in front so it fills in the neck of your coat and keeps you toasty warm. However, you can also make it longer so it can double, or shorter to be tighter around your next.

The yarn for this design was provided by King Cole. All opinions are my own.

Loopy Love

A Jacob’s Ladder Crochet Pattern
Easy Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

Size:
6″ tall x 30″ around

Yarn:
King Cole Curiosity DK, 100% Premium Acrylic, (524 yards / 150 g)
Purple Haze, 2891, (470 yds / 135 g) used

Needles: Laurel Hill Used
US- F/5, 3.75 mm

Gauge: Learn about gauge HERE
8 sts x 30 rows = 4” [10 cm] in linen st (tutorial HERE)

Other supplies:
yarn needle
(6) 1/2 – 1″ buttons
sewing thread
sewing needle

Stitches and Abbreviations: click on highlighted sts for tutorials
ch – chain
sc – single crochet
sl st – slip stitch
sp(s) – space(s)
st(s) – stitch(es)

Getting Started:
Do not weave in starting yarn tail until after the first part of the pattern (after the Row 2 repeats). The yarn end will help you know if you have an even or odd number of rows so you don’t have to count your rows. Even number rows end at the opposite side of the yarn tail.
Making the cowl longer or shorter is easy, simply work repeats of Row 2 to desired length, being sure to end on an even row. Remember, this will change your yarn amount used, so a longer cowl may require an addition skein of yarn.
A tutorial for the traditional Jacob’s ladder stitch can be found HERE. The looping begins 5 minutes into the video and it will help with the Looping section of this pattern. Just keep in mind that this pattern uses 2 strands of chains at a time.

Pattern:

Row 1: Ch 195, skip first 3 chs, [sc in next ch, ch 1, skip 1] 6 times, sc in each of the next 2 sts, *ch 7, skip 7, sc in next ch, ch 7, skip 7, [sc in next ch, ch 1, skip 1] 10 times, sc in each of next 2 sts; repeat from * 3 more times, ch 7, skip 7, sc in next chs ch 7, skip 7, [sc in next ch, ch 1, skip 1] 7 times, sc in next ch. – {69 sc}
Row 2: Turn, ch 2, [sc in next ch-1 sp, ch 1] 6 times, sc in next ch-1 sp, sc in next sc, *ch 7, sc in next sc, ch 7, [sc in next sc, ch 1] 10 times, sc in each of next 2 sc; repeat from * 3 more times, ch 7, sc in next sc, ch 7, [sc in next sc, ch 1] 7 times, sc in turning ch sp.
Repeat Row 2 until piece measures 30″ tall, making sure to end with an even number of rows. Do not cut or end off yarn.

Seaming:

Fold piece in half so the last row and starting chain are together. Sl st both ends together, chaining 7 each time a ch-7 sp is reached so that you will end with an even number of ch-7 spaces around the cowl.
Fasten off.

Looping the Ladders:

Turn cowl so the seam is on the inside. Choose a point on one of the edge rounds of ch-7 to begin the first looping.
Pick up the first two ch-7 and give them a half twist in order to make a loop (this is the only twist in the round).
Pick up the next two ch-7 and pull them through the loop just made, creating a new loop.
*Pick up the next 2 ch-7 and pull them through the previous loop; repeat from * until no ch-7 remain.

Count over 10 ch-7 on the next round of ch-7 and loop in the same manner,
*count over 20 ch-7 on the next round of ch-7 and loop in the same manner,
count over 10 ch-7 on the next round of ch-7 and loop in the same manner;
repeat from * one more time.

Finishing:

Sew a button over the twist at the start of each looped round. Pull the last loop or each round up and loop them around the buttons.

Wet block cowl.

It’s easy to get overwhelmed with all the things we are supposed to do to save the world. So I’ve found some eco crochet that will help you help Mother Earth; because sometimes even the little things can make a big difference.

Here are the names and links to seven free eco crochet patterns.

1) Fish Scrubby Washcloths by One Dog Woof
“I walked around the “downtown” of the town we’re moving to this fall. We found this little doodads store that had a bunch of, well, doodads, and all sorts of vintage-y, charming things. I found the inspiration for my fish scrubbie washcloths there.”

2) Strand of Diamonds Washcloth by Jessie At Home
“The diamond shaped post stitches on this washcloth give it great texture and visual appeal. So pamper yourself with this 100% cotton washcloth in a generous size.”

3) Pineapple Mug Cozy by Devine Debris
This crochet mug cozy is much more eco friendly then the disposable kind in the coffee shops. In addition, it’s super cute!

4) Easy Peasy Dish Towel by Sincerely, Pam
With this eco crochet pattern you can show off your favorite washable cotton yarn and also use colors that match your home decor. It’s form and fashion all in one, so cool!

5) Quick and Thick Sweeper Cover by Left in Knots
“Made with Bernat Blanket Yarn, this pattern can be made up easily in under an hour once you get the loop stitch down! You can wash is without worrying about shrinking, and the little loops do a nice job of catching hair and dust bunnies.”

6) Ruffles Face Scrubbie by Loopingly Made
“Being an avid d-i-yer, I made this ruffles face scrubbie so I could use it along with my homemade sugar scrub.  This is a pattern that’s not only easy to make, but also quick.”

7) Candy Corn Inspired Ripple Soap Cozy by Eye Love Knots
“My original ripple design was made in yellow and pink, and reminds me of pink lemonade, but I wanted a design I could share for Halloween that would also make a great candy bag!”

The Easy Origami Cup Tutorial will be your best friend at your next party. It can work as a snack cup, be filled for a goodie bag, and if lined with wax paper will even work as a drink cup. Change up the size of your starting square to change the size of your origami cup.

In the Easy Origami Cup Tutorial you will see both sides of the origami paper. Therefor it’s a nice idea to use paper that is a different color or pattern on both sides. Be sure to crease well after each fold.

Start the Origami Cup by folding paper in half diagonally.

Fold one short side flush with the adjoining long side. DO NOT crease the whole fold, only crease it were it meets the other short side, then unfold.

Fold the point opposite from the crease just made up to where the crease meets the side.

Now fold the other point up so the top edge is flush with the top edge of the previous fold,

Fold the top layer of the top flap down.

Turn over and fold the other top flap down.

Turn over again. Open up origami cup by squeezing in sides and popping out middles.

Tradition is great, but sometimes a unique granny square is just what you want. This square is made with two small traditional granny squares and two mitered squares joined together and then finished with a textured border. I designed and made this unique granny square for Allison’s Wedding Blanket CAL. I’ve posted those details below, you should really check it out, because the designers are amazing, and so is the finished blanket!

The yarn for this design was provided by Red Heart Yarns. All opinions are my own.

Allison is the fearless leader of the Red Heart Joy Creators, and we love her dearly, so we made her something special! You can join in the Wedding Blanket Crochet A Long! The main page for the CAL is over on Marly’s blog HERE. This blanket is so wonderful. It’s full of love and stunning designs by some of my favorite designers.

Readers aren’t just for reading; a lot of crafters out there need them for crafting as well. I was recently given the opportunity to check out the readers from Readers.com and even give a pair away to one lucky reader!

The readers reviewed in this post were provided by Readers.com. All opinions are my own.

When I was approached to review Readers.com and their products, I had to explain that I am one of those blessed individuals who do not (as of yet) need readers. However, my husband does, and being a high school English teacher, he is an avid reader.

Both Doug (my husband) and I perused the Readers.com site. Me to get a general idea of how it worked, and him to find some new readers. Before I tell you our experiences, I want to let you know some of the many benefits of Readers.com.

  • Readers.com is the foremost online destination for the widest variety of reading and computer glasses at affordable prices
  • We have something for everyone with our huge variety of over 600 styles including Full frame, half frame, rimless, pocket readers, folding readers to name a few!
  • Hundreds of styles of reading and computer glasses are $20 or less
  • Same day shipping on all orders received M-F before 2PM
  • Free Shipping on U.S. Orders $30+, No-Hassle Returns & 100% Happiness Guarantee
  • Full customer service support team
  • Power Finder quiz can help guide you in the right direction when it comes to finding your reading power!

I was really impressed with the variety of sizes, strengths, frames, and types of readers to buy. The prices looked really nice to me as well. Do be aware, not every frame is available with every option. Therefor the best way to search is to first narrow down all your parameters such as size, type, and strength. Once you do this you will have a smaller list that will be less overwhelming to look through.

Doug already had a pair of regular readers. He does find himself reading outside during the day on the weekends a lot, so he choose some sunglass readers. He was able to find a pair with the “smoky” lenses, as he doesn’t like “amber” sunglasses. If you do, though, those are available.

My questions about sunglass readers were would they really work for both functions? Would they dim the brightness of the sun without making the pages of the book too dark to read. I know I’ve had that problem with regular sunglasses.

Doug informed me that they really worked well exactly as they should. He could read his book in the sun without the white paper glaring the sunlight back at him, ans also without the pages being darkened so he couldn’t read them. The amplification was just as it should be as well. I was impressed.

So all things considered, I would say Readers.com is an awesome choice. If you craft outside you can get the sunglass variety, if you are at your computer a lot you can get the computer variety, and anyone else can get the traditional variety. No matter what variety you choose, you will have a great selection of stylish frames to choose from.

One last thing I want to share with you before the giveaway. Readers.com is proudly partnered with Timmy Global Health. Timmy is a non-profit on a mission to expand access to healthcare around the world and empower the next generation to tackle today’s greatest health challenges. By donating thousands of reading glasses to underserved communities in the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, and Ecuador, Readers.com is committed to making a global impact. In the seven communities Timmy serves, access to eye wear is limited and many people face steep consequences if their eyesight begins to deteriorate. For example, if a woman relies on weaving for her income, farsightedness suddenly prevents her ability to see the fine details required of the trade. A pair of reading glasses can make all the difference.

To enter the Readers.com Giveaway you must be at least 18 years of age and have a valid shipping address in the USA or Canada. The giveaway ends at the end of day eastern time on May 31, 2019. Winner will be contacted by email and will have one week to reply with a valid shipping address and choice of readers, or a new winner will be chosen. Void where prohibited. Any personal data collected on this entry form will be used solely for the purposes of administering this giveaway. The winner’s contact and mailing information will be provided to Sponsor, for the purposes of coordinating delivery of the prize. Other than that, no personal information collected will be shared with Sponsor.

Fabric Editions has more then just great fabric, they also have some of the cutest craft kits around! Many of them feature adorable animals. There are ornaments, bags, coin purses, pin cushions, pillows, faux taxidermy heads, and more!

The kit reviewed in this post was provided by Fabric Editions. All opinions are my own.

The other day I gave this felt ornament kit a go. I checked out the back of the box to see what I would need to grab from my stash to finish the little guy and was pleased to see everything was included with the exception of some fabric glue. Let’s be real, putting fabric glue in this kit would most likely double the price, so I can’t fault them for that!

The instructions were very clear and full of color pictures to help along the way. Stitches were explained and shown. All the materials were good quality, and there was plenty of thread and stuffing. The felt was thick and sturdy, which was nice to see.

Really the only tiny issue I ran into is that I think the pieces must be cut out with a machine and one of the eyes had a little brown on one bit of the cut edge (like the machine burnt it a bit). This was easily remedied by trimming a teeny bit to remove the brown, so it wasn’t even a problem!

My little owl ornament came out so cute! He’s going into my box of goodies for holiday gifts.

You can see all the awesomeness provided by Fabric Editions at their website HERE. They do not have an online store, but they do have a list on their site of where you can buy their products. That list includes pretty much every major craft store and more.

You can also order some of their kits from Amazon, HERE. If you want to see everything from Fabric Editions sold on Amazon, you can see that HERE. It’s pretty awesome. Fabric Editions has spectacular fabric, so if you aren’t looking for a kit, you should still give the Amazon page a look.
